Clearwater- Polk. Wild Rice and Red Lake all 
reported that they dTdtfl experience any prob- 
lems with generation or. delivery of power to 
their, customers'. A representative "hi" Red Lake

but was on his way home and did-

he didn't give itu second thought; 
until his grandchildren began ask-

War, 'Swcnson was presented with 
the Distinguished Flying Cross. 

Sen. LeRoy Slumpf who was on 

hand for the ceremony, said while 
waiting in the, lobby for the cere-

number of veterans who shared sto- 
ries about their service to die-coun-

unselfishly shared their good for-

it going lo educational institutions 
including Northland Community 
and Technical College where the 
ceremony wasbeing held. . 

During the war. however.

is with extreme pleasure lhat the 
City or Thief River Falls, Northern 
Municiapl Power Agency and 
Minnkoia/Municipal Joint System 
. dedicate this .s,ubslalion to John T. . 
Anderson." . . 

Anderson said of ihe substation 
dedication ceremony, "I was very . 
.impressed with Ihe people that were 
' there, thai would be from Minnkota 

Power, ex-council members. And I 
was happy to sec the employees of 
the city that I used to work with and . 
Ihe people from NMPA. 

"Another thing that made it spe- 
cial was that I was picked by my 
peers," said Anderson. He also 
thanked his wife for all her support 
throughout his career."" 

Anderson and his wife Janettc 
reside in Thief River Falls. They 
have four' children: Candacc (Neil) 
Malmquist and Debra (Steve) 
Jacobs, both of Worthington; John 
(Linda) of Andover and James 
(MaryJo) of Thief River Falls. They 

havefive grandchildren. _.:". 

— Anderson -grew-up- i n-Sl.-Ja.mcs-. 
and returned there- after serving in 
Korea. He. worked m the electric 
department in St. James, before 
going to Iceland for a year. He' 
returned to Si. James, then' worked 
in Iowa before moving . to 
Worthington. He started Ihc under- 
ground - distribution -system -in- 
Worthington- before-coming to*a 
similar situation in Thief River Falls 
in 1971. . 

"1 was to understudy Morris 
Owen, .who was the superintendent 
of the Thicr River Falls Utility 
Department before he was to retire. 
That job was as head of the wafer, 
sewer, and electrical departments." 
said Anderson. "Morris was a power 

plant operator,' and henceded -some- 
one with him who was in.clcctrical 
distribution. When I got to town, 
they had just completed a loop 
around the city and were starting an 
underground sysicm in a new devel- 
opment, f started using our own 
crews to do the underground work. 
We were still doing our own work 
when I retired in 1988." 
- When Anderson arrived in Thief 
River Falls, the electric department 
was in debt. . 

"When i retired, they had S3.4 
million -in the bank," he said. "We 
had increased the personnel, started 
an extensive underground system, 

. procured.^ lot qT good-'puid -for'— 
equipment and installcd"Minnkota , s 
load management capability. Wc did 
all lhat and wcri; still able to reduce 

' rates."' 1 . 

Anderson was one of the key- 

Bcoplc in the creation of- the 
lorthcrn Municipal Power Agcncw 
(NMPA). He served as vicc-prcsi- . 
dent for ihc.first four'years, then as 
president for the next 19. . , 

''When 1 first got to Thief River 
Falls in 1971, wc were' buying our| 
electric power requirements from} 
the Western Area Power , 
•Administration." said Anderson. 
"The notice that WAPA would no ' 
longer be a ., full-requirement 
provider came in 1976. 

. . "We had to go out lookingtfor — i 

additional, power alternatives, and 

wc were talking to a number of 

providers. Wc were _ able to' buy 

some of our requirements through 

the distribution 'cooperatives in 'the 

area at 20 percent above their- 
" wholesale * power rate . from 

Minnkota. and that's how bur rela- 
tionship, with Minnkota began.".. 

■ Anderson- and Bob Dahl of 
, Grafton, ND, were the primary 

movers in the NMPA organization. ' 

They began discussions with Andy 

Freeman. Lyle Lund and ■ Marv 

Gcbhari of Minnkota. 

"It was Marv- who told iis we , 

-should. _think about .. buying 

, Minnkota's 30 percent share-in.the'. _1 

Coyote power plant that was being m 

built northwest of Bismarck," said 

. Anderson. " . .■ 

That deal, which was closed just 

a week-before the new plant calTie'' 
:on line in 1981, [included a-load- - 

.sharing ogreemenLwith Minnkota to._ 

use its distribution system to deliver 

the energy to the NMPW member 

cities. " 

The original cities that combined 

to provide for their power needs 

were Ada, Baglcy, Baudejte, East 

Grand Forks. Halslad, Hawlcy, .... , , • .. . u ■

America's Drug Problem 
Is Not As Big As You Think 

. Partnership for a Drug-Free America 

If you're a parent, you sh ould be a ware 
that the drug problem is getting smaller every 
day. As it is to believe, kids who get 
pushed into drugs for the first time are about 
twelve years old. That being the average, % it 
means a lot of these kids are only seven or 
eight when they have their first drug experi- 
ence. By age thirteen, twelve percent have 
already tried marijuana. Eight percent have 

tried cocaine. And one out of every ten kids 
surveyed said would' like to : try crack just 

With odds like that, it's never too early 
to start, teaching your children'about the dan- 
gers of drug-abuse. Call 1-800-662 : HELP 
and ask for preteen drug-abuse-prevention 
information. Call today before the problem 
■ gets any smaller.

Its the ordinary folks who make our communities special 

— -—by Kathl Carlson 

-Times Reporter 
Wow! The year 2000 is finally 
here .' . . Even a few weeks ago. n 
seemed like ii was a long lime off. 
The much talked. about. Y2K issue 
made a lot of people nervous, and 
. even those of us who wercn't.ovcrly 
,* concerned about the world's fate 
Rallied a sigh of relief as the clock 
struck midnight and die new. year 
-' peacefully begun around the world. 
In addition lo all.of the attention 
devoted to Y2K. television net-' 
works, magazines and newspapers 
hailed the accomplishments of the- 
people who made a difference dur- 
ing the 20th century. 

To this reporter's knowledge, 
there aren't any "famous" people liv- 
ing in our community, but there arc 
scores of folks who, while going 
about their daily .lives, arc making 
important contributions. 

. Our schools arc operating 
smoothly under the 'direction of 
Superintendent Jerry Robichcau. 
Energetic and optimistic principals, 
faculty members and support staff 
— can bc.found at each of the individ-

children at that stage in 'their lives 
need people like Wayne who believe 
in their goodness and potential. 

Last fait Lincoln High School 
teachers Helen Anderson. Jeff 
Mumm and Jeff Johnson encour- 
aged their ninth students to look 
beyond themselves and assigned 
each of them to name and write 
about a person who had made a dif- 
ference in his or her life. Those cho- 
sen with having made a difference 
were presented with ribbons and 
asked to wear them on a designated

small g'roup of committed parents 
didn't give up until the playgrounds 
at Challenger l-lementary and

To make those things happen 
there are those who are able to bal- 
ance the demands' of jobs and fami- 
lies while still finding lime to do 
often the such things as participate in plays

to the Area Food Shelf. 
Our schools, medical facilities and

Ruling by Public Utilities 
Commission improves competition 

- Minnesota' Department of 
Commerce Commissioner Steve- 
Minn says-a -recent ruling by the 
Minncso'ta Public Utilities 
Commission (P,UC) is another step 
toward true competition for local 
phone service. 

■ The Commerce Department rec- 
ommended to the PUC that 
Minnesota Cellular Corporation 
(MCC) be designated as an eligible 
_ telecommunications carrier (ETC) 
~ to enable MCC to participate in 
federal universal service programs. 

Minnesotans living in .the MCC 
.service* area." said Commerce 
Commissioner Steve Minn. 
-'Throughout this case, the 
Department has recommended that 
MCC be given encouragement to 
complete the steps to obtain federal 
ETC status." . -'" 

The PUC decision is viewed as a 
vital first step in the Ventura 
Administration's mission to open 
Minnesota's telecommunications 
' markets to competition for local 
dial tone service.' -Recently, 

cost rural areas. While all existing 
local ■ telephone companies in 
Minnesota have already been 
approvcd;as ETC's, no competing 
carrier has ever received the desig- 
nation, making it difficult for com- 
petitors to justify entering- niral 
high cost areas. 

The PUC's decision is also sig- 
nificant because MCC would be the 
first wireless company in the nation 
to receive this designation for an 
area served by rural telephone com- 

,.._„._ panics. "Having a wireless provider r

panics who provide service in high and greater, competition to nology and telecommunications 

■ access to all pans of the- state. 

MCC was granted preliminary 
approval for federal ETC status by 
the PUC during a September 29 
hearing. The company, which cur-* 
rently serves parts ofsouthwestand 
northwest Minnesota, must-now 
submit additional required' filings 
to complete the approval process. A_ 
telecommunications provider may 
be designated as an ETC by state 
regulatory authorities once it has 
been determined that it will provide 
a satisfactory level of basic tele- 
phone service. The Department*, 
supports the PUC's supervision of 
ihe service offerings for which- 
MCC can receive federal funds. "It 
is important that there be regulato-. 
ry, oversight for any service that 
receives a public subsidy." said 
Commissioner Minn.

"When Selective Service began 
the on-line registration program, it 
was an immediate success," says 
the Honorable Gil Coronado, direc- 
tor of Selective Service. "It is grat- 
ifying to see the numbc.r_of young ' 
~ih'en"who are responding by log- 
ging on and registering via compui-

.Although late registrations are 
accepted, a man cannot register . 
after reaching age 26. Failure to 
register is a felony- and causes a 
man to be ineligible for student 
loans and grants for college, most 
federal and many state jobs, jobs 
with the U.S. Postal Service, and 
federal job training programs.' 
Moreover, male immigrants who 
arc subject to the registration 
requirement also may be denied 
U.S. citizenship if they do not reg-

to be a low-cost national defense .

sary. "Withqut Selective Service 
and Ihc draft registration program, 
.America would be far lessjirepared 
to respond in a crisis," Coronado 
explains! "The success of on-line 
registration is not only a milestone • 
in our Agency's' history, it is a mile- 
stone in America's history."

National Nurse 
Anesthetist week Jan. 

As healthcare heads into_the 
liexVceniiiryVsuriiicarand obstetri- 
cal patients can rest assured, that 
anesthesia has never been safer, 
said Lisa Citak. u certified regis- 
tered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) and 
the president of the Minnesota 
. Association of Nurse Anesthetists. 

Citak, and other members of 
.MANA will join CRNAs Around 
the country in celebrating a history 
of exceptional patient care and 
anesthesia during National Nurse 
Anesthetist wcelft" January 9-15. 

"Nurse anesthetists have been 
providing high-quality anesthesia 
"for jnore.lhan 100: years." said 
Cilak. "Patient safety is. and 
always has been, the number one 
prioniy'Tor. nurse anesthetists. We 
administer to the putienl's physical 
and emotional needs; offer reassur- 
ance and comloir, and stay right by 
the patient's side throughout the 
surgery'These are the hallmarks of 
a CRNA." 

Citak noted that the modem 
anesthesia was bom right here in 
Minnesota when nurse Alice 
Magaw began assisting surgeons at 
lite Mayo Clinic in Rochester.. Her 
work to professionalize the field 
helped usher in the' era of modem 
aiiL'sihesia care, making surgery 
safer. Tlie ability to more effective- 
ly manage or alleviate pain in 
patients created the conditions for 
'this century's major advances in 
the field of surgery to occur.

"Tttere are more than 26 million

CRNAs administer approximately^ 
65 percent of them." . 

■ Nurses were the first profession- 
al group to provide anesthesia ser-

the primary providers of anesthesia

anesthetists (anesthesiologists) 
became more common after World

surgical suites, obstetrical delivery 
rooms, physicians' offices, ambula- 
tory surgical centers, and medical ' . 
facilities of the U.S. Military, 
Public Health . Service, und 
Veterans Administration. 

In rural settings, CRNAs arcthe 
sole anesthesia providers in nearly 
two-thirds of all hospitals. 

"I can only envision that the 
quality of anesthesia care will con- 
tinue to improve in the next centu-

Physical Activity In Winter v 

Most of us stay inside as much as 

possible when the weather is cold. 

Often we are not as physically 
active as wc should be. Children as 
well as adults, need. some: kind o.f 
physical activity on a regular basis. . 
In fact, as'children's muscles and " 
bone's grow and develop, they may 

■ ■feel a strong urge to. move, climb, 
jump .and run. ifl"fhe winter, when 
we-arc inside «6 much this urge can 
cause problems. 

On those, days when your chil- 
dren are nither \VUd, won't cooper? ■ 

- ate orare fighting with each other, it 
could be that they are in need of 
some physical activity! If your chil-" 

' dreii have an' opportunity for regular 

. physical should notice 
that they eat and steep better. 
~ Here _are some suggestions for 
providing physical activity 'during 
the winter 
.•Whenever.. the temperature is 
warm enough, bundle up and' take 
your child outside to run; jump and ' 
-climb.-even-if-it is.only for fifteen _ 

•When inside try to create active 
games (hat can be played safely like 
an obstacle course (use things in 
your house to . go over, under, 
around and through). Remember '• 
that you c/n. always set limits and

' Q: What is the Social Security 
Advisory Bourd? . 

A: Legislation was enacted in 
1994 establishing -the Social 
Security Administration as an inde- 
pendent agency. The independent, 
seven member. Social Security 
Advisory Board was created at the 
same time and charged with mak- 
ing recommendations lo the agency 
to help improve the quality of ser- 
vice provided to the public. This is 
. done by advising lhe President, the 

several reasons, it is often prefer- 
able for the healthy spouse to be the 
Eaycc. First,- your wife might ,, 
ecome eligible based on minor, 
children at home so it make's sense 
that -she would be the payee for 
jhpsc _childrcn. Also, will your 

hcalth"prevc"nt ybuTrdm'bcing abler 
'to perform the activities of payee. 

You stated that you tfre in poor 
health. If you were to die and your 
wife was already the payee, there 
would be u smooth transition in the 

^ ..._ .... children's benefits from life to sur- • 

Congress, und, the Commissioner vivor benefits. Should you die while 
of Social Security on mutters relat- payee for the children,- the time 
ing to the. Social Security and required to' make your wife the

as .Stephen-Argyle out-scored Thief 
River Falls 76-68 in a body-bounc- 
ing display of basketball. Both 
teams went at it hard; neither team 
backed down: and the officiaIs...lct 
them play. 

It wasn't like fouls weren t 
called: llie.two teams combined to 
shoot 46'lree throws. However, that ■ 
.didn't stow doWn the humping and 
banginga bit. .,',.' 

"It's hard lo believe that can be 
called basketball," said Stephen- 
Argyle 'coaeh Jim Guclter. "The 
physical game is oka/. But playing 
the body is one .thing; the hammer- 
ing, the pushing and the grabbing is 
something else. Kids can get hurt in 
a game like that.'" _ . 

Although he might not have been 
totally happy with the free-for-all 
style of play, the action did show a 
spark Gueller was looking for. "I'm 
"very happy with our tournament," 
he said. "Coming in. we were look- 
ing for that internal drive that we 
hadn't shown yet. We found it. They 
played well." 

Stephen-Argyle won it on the 
basis of a 45-point first half. Thief. 
.River Halls had a 7-1 lead two min- 
■ utes into the game, but the Storm 
out-scored the Prowlers 17-4 to the 
quarter slop for an 18-11 leud at the

got back in it when Den Myers went 
on an 8-0 run with four free throws,

Volunteers make 
Christmas dinner 
special for all 

At a Christmas party recently, a friend of mine suggested 
tlial we pkiv a game al a party culled •Tveheen deprived uf . .^ 
; ."You earn points by coming up with something iluit no one 
else am say they were deprived of. It wasn't a game that [ was 
'fiimiliiir with. When 1 gave (lie purpose of the game some 
thought I- decided it probably has another purpose — to lorce us 
to realize that there are many things that we should be thankful 
for. and things aren't as bad as we thought. ■ 

With all of the panics and. activities taking place,. 
Christmas is generally a good time for me. Tlic.onlythitig.1 
miss is spending time with my ramily'."but'spendiHg"lime with 
them would be difficult because we'-re spread out all over the 
■country, which is just like many other families. 1 also realize 
there are many -others in our community who not only didn't 
spend Christmas with their families, but without the help ol 
others wouldn't have had a Christmas meal or a present under 
the tree. —'.'.. - 

Last week 1 took pictures and visited with some of the 
people putting on the annual Christmas Dinner in Thief River 
Palls, and with those organizing Christmas for Pennington 
County, which provides presents for children who might iiol 
otherwise receive a gift. ^ ■*->«■ ... 

Serving others has its own rewards anil tuels the spirit. It 
isn't surprising to see this in our community becaustvwc!re a 
close-knit community. But we don't doit just because it makes 
us feel good, we do it because it helps others. 

Despite the fact that these people who volunteer their time 
to put on the Christmas Dinner and Christmas for Pennington 
County. get something out of their efforts in flic way of good 
feelings, they still deserve our thanks. Tho se of. you who didn't 
contribute their time, but contributed resourcesalso deserve our 

To those who served others during the holiday: your 
actions and deeds set a good example for others, You provided 
companionship to those who were without family during the 
holiday, and have helped keep others who may be less fortunate 
from earning enough points al the game of "I've been deprived 
of " 

Thanks to those 
who helped us 
celebrate the new year 

. Time ticked past midnight and into the New Year without 
a bang, or a clunk. It was. uneventful if one were among the 
many required to make sure that nothing" did happen. Clearly, 
computers didn't go clunk or bang, because so many anticipat- 
ed the impact of time reaching January 1 , 2000. 

More frequent this year were questions about what I was 
going to do to celebrate the new year. Due to the fears about 
Y2K. and my new responsibilities, my answer was "work". 
.Their next question was, "doing what?"- 

! filled up my gas tank on Friduy. and picked up a few gro- 
■ cerics as is my habit, i got to the gas station and grocery store 
traveling in my Jeep, but driving on clear. roads and right past 
-ihc-Iaw-enforccmenLc cntcr. The fact t hat the roads were clear 
and safe to travel on were due in no small part to those who 
were working-during the holidays. Every day. and every night 
business and government responds to our needs. It was no dif- 
ferent on New Years Eve. 

Most of those people who worked New Years Eve termed 
the event a non-event or uneventful. Most sat by cups or coffee, 
wailing for-lime to slowly tick by. and jealously watched a tele- 
vision and the spectacular events taking place all across the 

woftd. "-■■■;- ■' 

Dave Lore, president and CEO of Minnkota.said_.the_ 
change over to January 1 , 2000 was uneventful, which was just 
as expected. It was uneventful, he said, because of months of 
planning and testing. ■ ' . 

Lore was alsopleased with the nation as a whole. 1 must 

agree. There wasn't evidence of panic or distress. Some people 

may have" stored Up on some supplies, but there weren't long-

Tobacco companies, who still' 
produce lobaceo products along 
Avtih-a zillion other tilings, have a 
few 'defenders. Their tobacco prod- 
ucts are "killers," and. frankly not • 
even very quick about it. Except 
keen in mind, the lobaceo folks 
would say. smokers do so voluntar- 
ily, ignoring constant warnings. 
Some claim addiction, but having

The final straw came when 
.President . Clinton . traveled to 
Seattle and talked about sanctions 
on countries that don'l share our 
standards on labor and environ- 
ment issues. Many countries real- 
ized then how far apart ihey were 
on many of the proposed agenda 

there was plenty of discussion 
between member nations before- 
hand. I'm not sure it was enough to 
ensure success. ■ . , .

So if die tobacco settlement has-

that promoting freer trade

solve many qf 'ihe problems they 
blame on trade. The more involve-

Mosl of my work during die 
WTO meeting was lo meet with 
some of the delegations, including 
Europe' and China, on agriculture 
issues. I'm a member of the biparti- 
san WTO Fanners^ and Ranchers 
Caucus . which meets., with 
Ambassador Barshcfsky on a regu- 
lar basis to make sure agriculture 
will truly be. one df the two prime' 
issues in tlie*negotialions. 

The Seattle session marked the 
first time thai Americaruagricuf

lion lo the protestors, which con- 
tributed lo the failure to reach an 
agreement, in my judgment. First 
of all. great emphasis was placed 
throughout*. the meetings on the 
need to create a working group lo 
pursue tying trade to labor rights. 
While some -believe this is "reason- . 
able, this was extremely controver- 
sial witli. many WTO members;

I'll continue to promote U.S. 
agriculture and exporter concerns 
as we try to move forward on these 
important negotiations. To give up 
of delay on any progress we can 
achieve would be a great disservice 
to Minnesota fanners and ex porters 
who depend on trade agreements. 
And it would be a great disservice 
to people all. over die world lliat

leasi some of tobacco's supposed 
victims were compensaled. righl? 
Nope. The money doesn't go io 
smokers; it goes to politicians lo 
spend. It's their new "revenue 

The career politicians are actu- 
ally claiming, that ihey — not 
smokers who suffer cancer, emph,-, 
esyma.and other ailments — arc*, 
the real yicRins of tobacco. The ' 
lawyers argue Iluit smoking has 
cosi governments billions of dol- 
lars in health care benefits they've 
p'rovided. Thus the court should 
award the money to the govern- 

Moreover, smokers enrich gov- . 
eniment coffers, boih by paying 
the high taxes on cigarettes andby 
having a statistically lower life 
expectancy. Dying sooner means 
.less U.ncle , Sam pays in Social 
Security and Medicare costs. Even 
the government admits that smok- 
ers pay $2.41 in laxcs for every S|

' Amidsl the smoke, politicians 
are making out like bandits and the 
lobaceo industry is doing fine, all 
•while the victims of tobacco — the . 
smokers themselves — pay exorbi-

As we enter the year 2000, we are faced witTi the 
difficult challenge of coming up with what we think 
are the top 10 stories of the year for Thief River 
Falls and the surrounding area. 

' After compiling ilicuntiiutl review, which begins ut the bottom 
of (his page, and stinring our thouylus on the subject wc decided lo 
group some of the Mories into general categories, and came up 
will) the following list, in no rtanicuhr order: 

•The November election: . ■ ■ - — ■ 

.• Tlie continuing fann crisis: 

• Wciitltcf: 

•Coinniunity linpn>vcinentjirojeci<;: 

• Influentiul people and their impact on the community-, 

• Mayor Borsheim resigning his city job; 

• Arctic C;il dropping its line of personal wutcrcruft: 

• The hospitul associnlion board election; 
•Tlie Pennington Counly Fair: and 

• Summary Judgment order on a lawsuit involving benefited 
property. f^"^ 

Tbv Election.. |n November, after three incumbent council 
members decided not to run for re-election, 10 individuals imd one 
write-in enndidnte, vied for the four slots open on the Thief River 
Foils City Council. Not only \va^it^mur_kur^ i many 
were running for office. bui'Sundnyillquor was on the ballot. 
Following the plccijon, it was also notable that a recount wits 
rcqueMeiFby-Stcvcn Narycrud in a closely contested nice for Ward 
I with Glen Knjewski. Sunday Ikiuor was defeated.- Winners of the 
election were Dale Wennberg, Glen Kajewski, Terry BldckLance, 
nnd Elvera Cullcn. "..■'■ 

The Form CrhLs. It septus lhat nearly every issue of The Times 
and Northern Watch fcutured a story uboul the continuing farm 
crisis; Several meetings were held, but one meeting which seemed 
to sum up the summer was entitled 'Too Much Water in the Wrong 

The Wcalhcr. As is frequently the case, weather is closely tied 
to problems m agriculture. This year was no exception. Spring 

storms in April caused, power outuges. Heavy. 

nnd persistent rains during the spring and sum- 
mer either destroyed crops or prevented them 
from being planted. During the fall, however, 
., the area experienced one of the warmest and 
»**!""■**? driest fulls on record. People were golfing 
"** L "' : " through November. 

L N**** 

Community ImprovemcnL-Constniction- 
typicully has a' significant impact on u com- 
munity. Residents of Thief River Falls and the 
surrounding community were witness to a number of construction 
projects, including: construction on the Highway 59 truck route, 
completion of the John T. Anderson substation and power routing, 
completion of the minimum security' facility in Thief River Falls 
in April, the start "of dredging of the Red Lake River, the start of a 
S 6.2 m illion improvement to Northwest Medical Center complex, 
"the start of'ii $53" million" construction" projecfarNorthland". 
Community and Technical College, the start of construction of a 
new American Legion building, ground-brcakingjjpr ...a, new 
Violence IntcrvcntioirProiecl building, completion of u Big Kmart 
in Thief River Falls, and construction or playgrounds af 
Challengcr-Elementury school und Lion's Park, which demon- 
strated u strong, spirit of voluntcerism living in the community. 
The city also upproved of its first Tax Increment Financing district 
to help address the continuing housing problem in the community. 

o? ; 

People in the news. The people who live and visit a communi- 
ty can have u significant inipacfbn that community. Last year was 
no exception. The many stories in Tlie Times and Northern Watch, 
give new meaning to the Chambcr.of Commerce's theme "Where 
Everybody is Somebody." (Please be aware that it's impossible to 
name all of those people pictured or featured in Thief River- Fulls 
and the community, so if we miss somebody, we apologize now.) 

Due to the ag crisis, high ranking visitors to the community 
included: Congressman Collin Peterson. U.S. Senators Rod Grams 
und Paul Wcllstonc, and State Legislative representatives Sen. 
LcRoy Stumpf and Rep. Tim Finseth. Oilier important people hav- 
ing un impact on (he community included 
Lowell andMuryc Swenson. Ralph lingelstad,

, : For Mn/DOT maintenance 
crews, year-round skills training 

■ and an annual inspection of their 
snow 1 fighting equipment prepares 

-thcm.for.winicr_storms.and keepings 
Minnesota highways as safe as pos- 
sible. But even with their defensive 
driving skills, some of Mn/DOT's 
snowfighters- will-be involved in- 
motor vehicle accidents with dri- 
vers who crash into their plows. 

According to Mark Wikelius.: 
Mn/DOT State Maintenance ' 
Engineer, "the majority of winter 
driving accidents arc caused by ' 
motorists driving loo fast during or 
right after a , storm." Last year, 
Mn/DOT snowplow operators were 
involved in 58 accidents statewide. 
Most of these were the result of 

motorists driving into snowclouds 
and colliding with plow blades in 
efforts to pass. Eleven of these 
accidents were rear-end collisions 
end of the plows. Driving into the 
rear-end of a plow is like slamming 
into a solid wall.. One snowplow 
can-weigh as-much-as-17averuge ■ 
sized automobiles. 

Wikelius offers these winicrdri- 
v'ing tips lo prevent accidents: 

• Stay alert, even with salt and 
sand on the road. Surfaces can still 
be slick. 

• Remember, black ice is invisi- 
ble. This is moisture built up on the 
roadway; . 

• Slow down. Do not use cruise, 
control on wet or icy roadways. 

• Yield to snowplows - they 
drive slower than the posted speed ' 

•Do not attempt to passu plow— 
.unlessyou-areccnain it issafc.Bc— 
aware that they have blind spots 
and. cannot always see • a* vehicle ' 
near their plow. Give them plenty 
■of-room-and anticipate - that they — 
might be turning or slopping. , . 

• Avoid rushing - allow yourself 
plenty of lime to get to where you 
ure going.

there working for you - please help ■

What did they name the baby? 

by Elizabeth Otl 

Times Reporter 

What's in » nam?? 

That which we call a rose 

By tiny other' name would smell as 

sweet. — Wm. Shakespeare 

It is one of the first questions wc 

ask when u baby is bum. In fuel, it is 

often asked before the baby Is bom. 

Over the last hundred years or so 

popular names have clmngcd quile a 

bit, but there arc still a few familiar 


Although the"popular names for 
girls born at Northwest Medical 
Center seem to be following nation- 
al trends, the same is not true for 
boys names. 

Emily and Jacob— 

Nationally, the top 1 girls names 
for 1999 were Emily. Sarah. 
Brianna. Samantha. Hailey. Ashley. 
Kaitlyn. Madison, Hannah and 
Alexis. Each of those names are 
found in the list of 1999 births at 
NWMC. The lop five names for 
girls bom at NWMC were Emily 
(5). Kaitlyn (5). Hailey (4). Ashley 
(3) and Cheyenne (3). 
■ The lop 10 boys names were 
Jacob. Michael. Matthew, Nicholas. 
"Christopher. Joshua. Austin. Tyler," 
Brandon and Joseph. Locally, the 
top five names were Austin, (5), 
Cameron (5). Mason (4), Logan (4), 

Dillon (3) and Nicholas (3). There 
was one Jacob, one Michael and one 
Matthew, hut no Christopher or 
Joseph. r - 

The lop names for the I990*s 
included many of the names found 
in 1 999>_hin h annoim ccments^Top 
girls names were " Ashley (3)r 
Jessica. Sarah (I): Brittany, Emily 
(5). Samantha III. Amanda. 
Kalherine (1). Megan and. Brianna 
(2). Names similar to those in the 
lop ten include: Bretina (2), Jenna 


Top Boys names were Michael 
(1). Christopher. Matthew (I), 
Joshua (2). Jacob ( I ). Nicholas (3). ■ 
Andrew, Daniel. Tyler (2) and 
Brandon (2). ' . 

Althou gh- the, national favorite 

was not popular locally fo'f~a~firsi~ 

•name, there were six boys with the 

' middle name of Michael,- John (4) 
and Jacob (3) were also popular 
middle names. Popular middle 
names for girls were common first 
names a century ago, Locally. Marie 
(10). Ann (8). Elizabeth (o) and 
Rose (6) were lop choices for mid- 
die names last year. Marie was the 
ninth nu>st_popular n ame in" ^ the 
1 880"s. Anna. , Elizabeth 'and Rose

A century of names 
For the most part, favorite boys 
names have not changed much since 

the 1960's. Michael was the second last year is the niTmber of- children 

most popular name in the 60's and with three given names. There were 

the number one choice in the 70's, six girls and' three boys with two 

80*s and 90's. David, James, John middle names. 

and Robert con be found in the lop Choosing a mime 

ten for the 80's, 70*s and 60's. BabyCenter, the web site- that 

Christopher made the top ten list in provided much of the information 

the 90's, 80's and 70!s. — -^^for-tliis story, hns several-sugyes-- 

The 1990's were the first decade lions when choosing a name, flic 

in over a century in which John "was main points to keep in mind are: 

not in the top ten of boys names. It —Sound and compatibility. Does il 

go well with the last name? 
—Uniqueness. A couple -with an 
unusual last name may want to stick 
with Mary or John while the Smiths 
may want to consider something 
" with more pizazz. 
—Relatives and friends. Many par- 
ents chose to name children after 
loved ones, just be sure the child can 

live with the nam e. ; _. 

B "—Ancestry and heritage. Tradition. 

knocked down to 20 in the 90's : .religion and ethnicity may all play ■ 

The top choice for girls in the important parts in naming a thifd. 
1990's was Ashley. From the 1880's — Initials and nicknames.' Think 
through the 1960s the number one about how ncople may alter, shorten 
choice for girl's names every or abbreviate the name. This 
decade, except one, was Mary. In reporter actually went to college 
die I950's, Linda was the number .with u guy named Paul Ness. (You j 
one name and Mary was number figure it Out.)

held the number one spot for the 
1880's, 1890's, 1900V1910 , s, and

again in the 50's. In the 60's and'

--Jennifer, which was the top 
choice forgirlifin the 70's and 

Haley Bruggeman, 10 months, is one of four girls born at 
Northwest Medical Center last year'who wefegiven, the name: 
Hers Is unique, though, because of the spelling. The other three 
girls' names were spelled "Hailey/ - 

announcements, it seems many par- 
ents arc striving for original names. 
Some parents pick a fairly common 
name but give it a unique spelling, 
for example: Caitlyn, Kaitlyn, 
Kaitlynn, and KoteLynn. A variation 
on Brianna is "BreAnna." 

Some unusual names have story 
behind them. This reporter often 
gets asked about ' her own sons* 
names. Ncylahd Broylcs was named 
for two former college football 
coaches: Robert Ncyland, 
University of Tennessee, and Frank 
Broylcs, University of Arkansas. 
Hoyden, however, is not named 
after Haydcti'Fox or Hayden Fry. ■ ■ 

Perhaps the most unique girl's 
name was O'Brien Marie, daughter 
of Mark and Laura Stromsodt of 
Middle River. When O'Brien's 
mother was a little girl she saw. a. 
television show with a character 
with the name. She is not sure if it 
was a last name or a first name, but 
decided back then that she would 
use the name for her daughter. Laura 
liked the : name because it was 
unique and because it was not 
specifically a girl's name or a boy's 

Gender benders & other trends 

There were three name used 
interchangeably for boys and girls 
bom at- NWMC. There' were two 
boys- and two girls named Bailey. 
_ There were two girls named Jordyn 
' and one boy named Jordan. 
■ Rylic/Rilcy was used for one girl 
and two boys. Other gender-neutral

^lantiaryiis Cgrvicar 
Cancer Awareness Month 




Early detection with a simp]e 
Pop test is the most effective strotcr 
gy for preventing deaths from cervi- 
cal cancer, according to medical 
authorities — and education is the 
best prescription for putting that 
strategy to work. 

Educating women about cervical 
cancer screening is the primary goal 
of Cervical Cancer Awareness 
Month, currently being observed 
during January by state, and national 
public health officials. ' 
^Minnesota public health officials 
are using the event to' remind 
women that free screening services 
.ore readily available to uninsured 
and under-insured women in the 
state. The services arc offered 
through some 300 local -clinics 
sponsored by the Minnesota 
' Department of Heolth (MDH). The 
clinics provid e breast and cervical 
cancer screening to women in all. 
parts of the state. 

According to MDH, about 190 
women arc diagnosed with cervical 
cancer in Minnesota in a typical 
year, and the illness accounts for 45 
deaths' n'ycar in the slate, —even 
though the illness is almost 100 per- 
cent curable if caught early enough. 
■Still, according to nauonal esti- 
mates, as many as 60 to 80 percent 

' of" women with newly diagnosed 
cervical cancer haven't had a Pap 
lest in the last five years. Those 
least likel y to have received qpprd- 

" priale screening services are older 

- women, the poor and w'pmcn who 
iack insurance coverage. Also, 

■ Latino, Africon-Amcrican and 
Asian-American women arc less 
likely than other women to gel 
screened according to current rec- 
ommendations. Routine ..Pap tests 
ore an important preventative health 
measure, and women arc encour- 
aged to ask theiF physician about 
bow often to have it ddnc. 
", s Clinics participating in the MDH 
program l nave performed some 
90,000 PaRicsjffor cervical cancer 
since 'theyx first opened in .1992. 
They have provided treatment for 
prc-cancerous conditions for 1,500 
women, and the lives of 25 women

What did they name the baby? 

by Elizabeth Ott 
Times Reporter 

_ ^ What's in a name? 
" That which we call a ntsc 
By any other name would smell as 
sweet. — Wm. Shakespeare ■ 

' ;isk when a horn. In fuel, ii is 
■ often asked before the baby is bom. 
Over the last hundred years or so 
popular names have changed quite a 
bit. but there arc still a few familiar 

Although the popular names Yor 
girls born at Northwest Medical 
/' Center seem to be following nation- 
al trends, the same is not true for 
boys names. 
■ • • Emily and Jacob 

Nationally, the top 10 girls names 
' for fy»9 were Emily. Sarah. 
Brianna. Samanlha. Ha i ley, Ashley, 
Kaillyn, Madison, Hannah and 
Alexis. Eiieh of those names are 
.found in the list of 1 999 births at 
NWMC. Tlie top five names for 
girls bom at NWMC. were Emily 
(5). Kaillyn (5). Huiley (4). Ashley 

- -(3tTindCheycnnrt3): :_ 

The top 10 boys names were 

Jacob, Michael, Matthew, Nicholas, 

, Christopher. Joshua, Austin, Tyler, 

Brandon and Joseph. Locally, the 

- top five nahics were ' Austin (5). 

Cameron (5), Mason (4), Logan (4), 

Dillon (3) and Nicholas (.1). There 
was one Jacob, one Michael and one 
Matthew, but no Christopher or 

The top names far the HWO's 
included many of the names found 
in 1999's birth announcements;' Top 

_girls_names were - Ashley (3). 
Jessica. Sarah (I). Brittany, Emily 
(5). Samanth'a (1). Amanda, 
Kalherine'(l), Megan and Brianna 
(2). Names similar to those in the 
top ten include: Brcnnu (2), Jennn

Top Boys names were Michael

Joshua (2). Jacob ( I ). Nicholas (3). 
Andrew, Daniel, Tyler (2) and 
Brandon (2). 

■ " Although the national favorite 
was not popular locally lor a' first 
name, there were six boys with the 
middle name of Michael. John (4) 
and Jacob (3) were also popular

the I960's. Michael was the second 
most popular name in the 60's and 
the number one choice in the 70's. 
. H0*s and 90'.< David, James, John 
and Robert can be found in the top 
len for the 80's, 7Q's and 60S. 
Christopher made the top ten list in 
...the 90"s. 80's and 70's. 

Thc-1990 "s were the first decade 

in over a century in which John was 
not in the top ten of boys names. It 
held the number one spot for the 
I880's. 1890'*. 1900*s, 1910's, and 
1920s. In the 30's and 40's it fell to 
number three, -but was number one 
again in the 50's. In the 60*s and 
70's it was third again, and in the 
1980's it slipped to seventh place. 
By the 1990s it was in fourteenth 

Jennifer, which was the top 
choice, for girls in the 70's and 80's. 
was knocked down to 20 in the 90 s. 
The lop choice for girls in the 
1990's was Ashley. From the 1880's 
through the I960 s the number one 
choice for girl's names .every 
decade, except one, was Mary. In 
the l!>50's, Linda was the number 
one name and Mary was_nurnber 
two. ' 


Judging from last year's birth 
announcements, it seems many par- 
ents are striving, for original names. 
Some parents pick a fairly common 
- name but give it a unique spelling, - 
for example: Caitlyn, Kaillyn, 
Kaillynn, and KalcLynn: A variation 
on Brianna is "BreAnna." 

Some unusual names have story 
behind them. , This reporter often 
gets asked about her own sons' 
names. Neyland Broyles was named 
for two former college football 
couches: Robert Ncyland, 
University of Tennessee, and Frank 
Broyles, University of Arkansas. 
f Hnydcn, ■ however, is not named 
after Hay den Fox or Haydcn Fry. 

Perhaps the most unique girl's 

—name-was O'Brien "Marie, daughter 

of Mark and Laura Stromsodt, of 

Middle River. When O'Brien's 

_mothcr..wos a little girl she saw a 

television show with "a character 

with the numc. She is not sure if it 

was a last name or a first name, but 

. decided back then that she would 

use the name for her daughter. Laura 

liked the name because' it was 

unique and because it was -not 

specifically a girl's name or a boy's 


Gender benders & other trends - 

There were . three name used 
interchangeably for boys and girls 
bom at NWMC. There were two 
boys and two girls named Bailey. 
There were two girls named Jordyn 
und . one boy named Jordan. 
Rylic/Rilcy was used for one girl 
and two boys. Other gender-neutral 
names that were -given to area girls 
arc Morgan (2) and Tjiylor {1). 

Another point that stands out 
"when viewing the llsrofnnmesfrom ' 

last year is the 'number of children 
with three given names. There were 
six girls and three boys with two 
middle names.- 

Chousing u name 
BabyCenier. the web she that 

Sruvided much of the information 
)r this story, has several sugges- 
- lions when-choosing ;i numc.. (lie 
main points to keep in mind are: 
— Sound und compatibility. Does it 
go well with the last name? 
— Uniqueness. A couple with an 
unusual last name may want lo stick 
with Mary or John while the Smiths ■ 
may want to consider something 
with more pizazz. 

— Relatives and friends. Many par- 
enls chose to name children after, 
loved ones, just be sure the child can 
live with the name. 
— Ancestry and heritage. Tradition, 
religion and ethnicity may all play 
important parts in naming a child. 
— Initials and nicknames. Think 
about how people may alter, .shorten 
or abbreviate the name. This 
reporter actually went to college 
with a guy named Paul Ness. (You 
figure it out:) 

One" more" iioieV'He" careful who 
you say may name the "baby. When 
this reporter's mother was expecting 
fur the third time in three years, she 
asked the oldest child in the family. 
"Ross, what should we name the 
-baby?" — . . . 

Ross, soon to he five, replied. 

"What if it's a girl?" 

Ross looked at his two little sis- 
ters and replied. "Cod wouldn't do Neyland Broyles has a one-of-a-kind name. He was named for two

Early detection with a simple 
_Pap testis the most effective strate- 
gy for preventing deaths from cervi- 
cal cancer, according to medical 
authorities — * and education is the 
best prescription .for' putting that 
strategy to work. 

Educating women about cervical . 
cancer screening is the primary goal 
.'of Cervical Cancer Awareness 
Month, currently being observed 
during January by state, and national 
public health officials. ' 
, Minnesota public health officials 
are using the event to remind 
women' that free screening services 
are readily available -to uninsured- 
and under-insured women in the 
state. The services are offered 
through some 300 local clinics 
sponsored by... 'lhe„ Minnesota 

- Department of Health (MDH). The 
clinics provide breast and cervical 
cancer screening to women in all 
parts of the state. 

According to MDH, about 190 
women arc diagnosed with cervical 
cancer in Minnesota in a typical 
year, arid the illness accounts for 45 
deaths a year in the state — even 
though the illness is almost 100 per- 
cent curable if caught early enough. 

Still, according to national csti- 
. mates, as many as 60 to 80 percent 
of women with newly diagnosed 
.cervical cancer haven't had a Pap 
test in the last five years. Those 
least likely to have rcccivcd'oppro- 
priatc screening services ore older 
women, the poor and women who 
lack insurance coverage.- Also, 
Latino, - African-American and 
'Asian-American women arc less 
likely than other women to get 
screened according to current rec- 
ommendations. -Routine Pap tests 

- arc ari important preventative health 
measure, and women arc encour- 
aged to ask their physician about 
how often to have it done. 
s Clinics participating in the MDH 
program nave performed some 
90,000 Pap tests for cervical cancer 

_sincc_they_first. opened in 1992. 
They have provided treatment for 
pre-canccrous. conditions for 1,500 
women, and the lives of 25 women

A full dinner menu

EvBryona Welcoma! 

The holidays arc now over and 
the whole Y2K thing has come and 
gone. Not having lobe in school for 
almost two weeks wus' good 
enough, but there's something about 
going .to bed without my alarm 
clock set tlml appealed to me the 
. Alter a couple of days," the lazi- 
ness of vacation had. already set in. 

. This became evident when I was 
mid to go to the grocery store early - 
Christinas Eye-to gel some lust 
minuie items for dinner, and it took 
me 30 minutes to^get out the door. I 
eventually made it. but soon regret- 
ted that 1 had even attempted after 
seeing llie-parking lot crammed 
with vehicles. 

It took me fifteen minutes 10 find 
about six items, followed by anoth- 
er fifteen in line. 1 looked .around 
and noticed that, besides dozens of 
present-hungry kids that were hang- 
ing on Iheir parent's carls. I was 
pretty much the youngest person 
ihere. Looking at the woman in 
front of me and then at the man 
beside me, I was curious as to who 

. they were when they were my age. I 
wonder if whinhey are now is any- 

thing like they had expected to be. 

Right now if 1 try to look even a 
couple of years into the future, I go 
blank and I haven't decided if dial is 
n-rfary.thing or not. I know certain 
things that J definitely want to do in 
my lifetime, along with things that I 
definitely do nut. I have come to the 
conclusion-thai everyone has totally 
different lives, and when impacted 
by situations that they have no con- 
trol over, their "life plan*' can 
change. Maybe thai lady that was 
standing behind me had planned lo 
live next to the beach in Florida, 
then met some .guy she diought 
might be the one atuTga've ii up lo" 
■ live next to a field in Minnesota. 

So in (hat fifteen minutes. J 
decided that I ani not going to have 
a "life plan," but maybe just. some 
sort of self-made guideline ihslcad. 
[ think if I just, go day to day mak- 
ing decisions based on what makes 
me happy at the moment, even if it 
doesn't work out the way I'd hoped, 
I won't ever regret anything. It will' 
just be something else, that I tried, 
. and hopefully one of those tries will 
stick with me.

Now that the Y2K bug has 
proven to be a complete farce, ore 
the doomsdayers'who mode hay by 
slirring up hysteria going to be 
called into account? will they lose 
credibility? Will, they lose their 
audience? '" 

I doubt it. There will always be a 
market for doom and gloom. Look 
at the supermarket tabloids. They 
predict disasters every week. They

vivalists who hoarded canned goods 

. and hid in their basements cling to 
their notion that disaster is on its 
way. "We aren't out of the- woods'

■ A'Tcw years back, there was a 
doomsday cult in Texas whose 
Icadc'r'msisKdnrTaTrcult 'members 
would be taken to heaven if at the .

As the appointed hour 
approached, the cult members gath-

• The moment of truth came. 
Nothing happened. Instead of post- • 
poning the date of doom, the cult ' 
leader dTd something I have never 

" seen done before or since. 

"I was wrong," he said. "All of 
my previous pronouncements 
should be ignored.* 
The cult was dissolved. 
Seldom do false prophets give in

Crying Babies 

Most . parents have felt over- 
whelmed by the experience of por- 
entingat onetime or another. One 
time when this can happen is when 
you have a crying baby. Crying can 
be frustrating to parents. Wc need 
to. understand that some crying is ' 
normal. •' 

A typical newborn can .spend up 
to two and a half hours a day crying. 
Babies will probably cry th e mos t 
between the age of two weeks and 
two' months. 'but by the lijnc he or 
she is three months old, crying 
episodes should occur less often and 
become more-predictable. Our goal 
should be to-try to understand why 
Baby is crying. 

Crying js the only way a newborn 
has to communicate. By crying a 
baby lets us know he is..hungry, 
tired, too warm, too cold, in pain, 
surprised, bored, over-stimulated 
and more. The hard part is for us to 
figure out which one it is this lime. . 
- As babies get older, they cry to 
'communicate'." But7 remember,' they '" 
ore growing and changing all the 
time and so what they, ore crying,, 
ttbou't rtI3#- have changed. They, 
may be trying to tell us to change 
how wc handle them or feed them or 
play. with them. Babies change all 
the, time and so you also, need to 
change. ,' 

'Sometimes a baby just cries. . . 
and cries. . .and cries .-.^.and you ' 
know there is no physical reason for 
■it. You've already checked your 
baby for hunger, comfort, room 
. temperature, etc. and can't find, a 
reason for the crying. Renumber 
that the crying is not because you 
ore a bad parent. You have to do the 
best you can to try to comfortyour 
baby. Try one of the following, 
maybe it will help: 

•Rock the baby. 
■- 'Sing or play music. 
""•Go for a ride in the car or the 
• '-Put the baby in a baby swing. 

•Massage baby gently. 

•Offer a pacifier. 

•Let someone els e take over to 
give you a break. 

ABOUT ' • 

All children, even very young 
infants, enjoy having someone talk 
to them. ■ So remember to have 
"conversations" with your child.

...Another Birthday, Hut It Could Be Woe* 

No mutter what we do. wc just can't avoid getting older. Every yi 
those birthdays just roll around like clockwork and we have to add one 
more' year toiiur ages, whether we like it or not. 

Of course my birthday is right in the, middle of January - a really 
Tousy time-of (he yearwhen you think about it. Not only is the weaiher umi- " 
ally at its worst, often 30 or 40 degrees below zero, but people are suffer- 
ing from cabin fever. and/or depression because Christmas is over and the 
worst part of winter is still ahead. This is not a good time to add another 
year to one's age, since that is depressing- in itsell.. 

But then, who am I to quibble - I'm up there so far in age that 1 have 
to consider the alternative to adding anoiher^ar to my age. which is not 
adding another year lo my age. *Now that I think about it, perhaps having 
another birthday isn't so bad after alt. 

Lost year Lloyd Omduhl. former North Dakota lieutenant governor 
and professor of political science at the University of North Dakota, wrote 
a column with a little test in the November 8, lyyj.Gnmd Forks Herald. It 
gave me a wonderful chuckle, even though it wasn't at my birthday time ot 
year, and I clippcd-il und saved it so I could look at it, on my next birthday. 
Well, my next birthday is nearly here and I'd like to share Professor 
Omdahl's little quiz with you. He called it. "Why think you're old when ■■ 
you can know it?" 1 hope you enjoy it too.'

U of M seeks support for new building 

(Continued from Page 1) 
dently of the interview with- 
University staff, indicates that map- 
ping of the human genome will be" 
completed, by _2003. Mapping the 
human- genome is, however, only 
the first step. 

Research into cells and their 
molecules already has led to major 
breakthroughs in developmental 
biology, genetics, microbiology, 
molecular medicine, ncuroseiencc, 
horticulture, and agronomy. 

The University has already. 
. begun to position itself to take' 
advantage of the advances. It has' 
recognized its departments. Three 
new departments grew out of the 
■ reorganization. Each combines tal- 
ents and expertise frdhvrnnny disci- 
plines. Combining these disciplines 
allows physicians and scientists -to 
interact and solve problems. The 
three . reorganized . departments 
_includc: Ihc^ Deportment of 

Biochemistry, Molecular Biology 
and Biophysics; the Department of 
Genetics, ' Cell Biology und 
, Development; and the Department 
of J^curoscience, 

For Minnesota, scientific 
-advances in these ureas could mean 
new medical treatments available 
first lo families und friends; -the 
polcnlial for u lurgc life sciences 
industry to complement the stale's 
medical technology industry; und 
significuntly enhanced agricultural 

Ccrra said what it means to 
Thief River Falls, is lhat 'since it 
would mean keeping Minnesota in 
the competition for the best faculty! 
it'll attract the best students, and 
most of the students from the 
.University Medical School to stay 
within the region. Historically, the 
University of Minnesota, has pro- 
duced most of the physicians in 
Minnesota: Approximately 90 per- 

cent of dentists trained ' in 
Minnesota, stay in Minnesota. 

Secondly, Cerra said, if the 
University has strong science and 
education programs, ihe University 
will produce good physicians and 
have strong outreach programs. 
Communities, like Thief River 
Fulls, could benefit because many 
companies want to locate in com- 
munities where there are good 
health cure facilities. . 
■ Third, from the laboratory, com- 
mercial products arc developed. 
Those, bio-technology industries do 
not need lb be positioned in the 
Twin Cities. Many of the new 
industries will have nn. impact on 
agriculture und the agri-economy. 

Dr. Al Michael, dcun of the 
Medical SchooL said he is_ viiry 
concerned about the future of 
health . professionaUeduculion in 
Minnesota. Michael said "changes 
that are ■ beyond our control have 

severely damaged ihe funding 
structure for the education nl future 
doctors, nurses, pharmacists, 'den* 
lists, public health' professionals 
and veterinarians." 

Michael explained that in the. 
past iheiUnivcrstty hus, to.. a great 
extent, relied upon patient-care al 
the teaching hospital to fund leach- 
ing. Now the University is under 
siress from the maifaged care 
movement and economics. 

Michael' said the University- 
needs the investment by the state 
and citizens so' that ii can take 
advantage of new technologies. 

Ccrra added' lhat as n lop 
research facility, the University. 
. competes ■ for research grants, 
which bring additional income u» 
the University. Cerra said that 
unless we make the investment in 
faculty, the University wijl not he 
able to compete for research grunts 
that make advances in biu-iechnol- 

ogy [tONMtile. That's important lo 
Minnesota because all kinds- of 
industries bcncUl and arc sptm-oli' 
from the research. 

Michael said there are enormous 
iinplkuiions I'mm the research into 
like genetics, and cell biolo- 

inu'lccular biology, ncuro- 
seiencc. and biochemistry. The 
University of Minnesota and.lhc

_l:l.7 into llic foiir : mjntitc extra, ses- 
sion. He finished off' a "fast" break 
with 2:22 to play, and then, after 
picking a loose ball off the floor,

' with 61 seconds on the clock. 
Two free throws- by Adam Bjerk

■ throws over the final 34 seconds - 
one by Scih Harlow, two by Justin

A turnover on 'an inbounds play 
with -8.7 seconds remaining' wound 
up costing the Prowlers a chance to 
win in regulation time as East Grand 
Forks' Eric Sanders went over the 
top of a defender kr hit a game- 
extending jumper from the side with 

-2-.9-sccondleft.- ■ 

■ The finish made, amends for a 
slower-thnn-slow start by both 

-teams.-Easl Grand Forks was score- 
less for the first 3 1/2 minutes, yet 
trailed by just a single point. Thief 
River Falls went the first 5:14 with- 
out a field goal, but still-faced just a 
7-5 deficit. "- 

; "Th e kids we re a lilllcjight at lhe_ 

stan." acknowledged Thief River 
Falls coach Bob Johnson. "They, 
were tentative." 

East Grand Forks wound up lead- 
ing- 1 2-9 at the end of the first quar- 
ter. Sanders and Myers swapped 3- 
point shots in the final minute of the 
first- half that ended with the 
Prowlers on top 27-25. -

top 53-51 with 1:43 remaining. But 
Myers answered -with a basket on 
the inside that was followed by the 
play of the night as Loe poked the

into a lay-up and a 55-53 lead with 
just 17.2 seconds on the clock. 

East Grand Forks" Josh' 
Perkerwicz missed the front end of a 

Junius free throw opportunity with 
I L~2~"seconds to play, and "the 
Prowlers, drew a foul on the battle 

inbounds pass wound up in the 
hands of the Green Wave, leading to 
Sanders' game-tying shot. 

It was—jt game where the 
Prowlers' defense helped cover, an 

^inconsistent :offcnsc._according_lo._ 

head coach Bob Johnson. "We're 
not totally satisfied," he said, "but 
65 points shows the offense is still 
there. The one real positive we can , 
take out of is that over the last 3 1/2 
minutes of regulation time and in 
overtime we gave up just two field 
goals. We made if tough on them 
defensively.- The kids know that, 
defense 'will win basketball g ames 
like this." 

Myers finished with 16 points, 
Loc 12 and Sorvig 11. East. Grand 
Forks freshman Jordan Knowlton . 
led all scorers with 22 points, while 
Bjerk and Sanders both netted 10. 

Thief River shot 41 percent from 
the field (26/64) and made 8 of 17 
free throw opportunities. East 
Grand Forks watched numerous 
long range in-and-out type attempts 
spin off the rim during a 35 percent 
snooting night (16/46). The Green 
Wave also had a'tougrr night at the 
free throw line, where they were 15--

Advances in medicine 
force us to examine, and 
answer new questions 

Willi the turn of the century people are looking back at what 
has been accomplished in the' past 100 years. They arc asking 
things like: Who was the most influential person? What was the 
do lln ins moment of the century? And. what was the greatest' 

■Change has come about at a fantastic rale during the past 1 00 
vears. Personally, however. I believe nothing rivals the changes 
that have taken place in the health industry. But. we need |o fas- 
ten our seal belts, because, as the saying goes "you ain't seen- 
nothing yet." ■ 

Last week University of Minnesota-physicians and scientists 
conducted a Mint Medical School in. Thief River Falls. The 
subject of the event was the human brain. It also served as an 
opportunity to introduce .'participants to the dawn of a biologi- 
cal revolution — molecular and cellular biology. -For the 
University of M in neso ta this future should include the con- 
struction oi a $70 million" 'Molecular' and Cellular Biology 
Building. The new building will support three new departments . 
from the several reorganized departments at the University. The 
new Department of Biochemistry,. Molecular Biology and 
Biophysics will focus on cell signaling (how cells communicate 
with each other). The .new Department of Genetics, Cell 
Biology and Development will concentrate on cell and devel- 
opment biology, genetic mechanisms used to repair or replace 
disease-causing genes; and genetic mechanisms that cause neu- 
rological and neuromuscular diseases. The new Department of . 
Nouroscichce will study the molecular building blocks 
involved in thought, sensory perception and movement. 

Heady stuff Perhaps it is so difficult to understand that many 
-of as fail to see the'possibilities and implications. 

The future of this building and foresight hinges upon the 
decision of the legislature. The success of the project, if fund- 
ed, depends upon the talent and abilities of scientists and physi- 
cians requesting additional funding for the project. How we use 
this technology and what we make of it, depends to an extent, 
upon what we as citizens can accept. 

Physicians and scientists Relieve that by 2003, the human 
genome will be mapped out: Physicians and scientists at the 
University of Minnesota believe that's the first step in the 
future of medicine and that's why they're investing in this 

Physicians and scientists tell us the possibilities arc endless. 
Knowing what genes perform what functio'n and purpose, and' 
how they communicate could lead to many new discoveries. 
With that information, for example, physicians might reason- 
ably expect to be able to treat an illness before it becomes 
■symptomatic. Gene therapy could result in permanent cures at 
•the molecular level. Think of the possibilities -r- no more drugs, 
no more treatments. This new understanding could mean a cure 
for cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases 
and illnesses. . , • _ 

One hundred years" ago, a respirator would hayc been con- 
sidered miraculous, an organ transplant might have been con- 
sidered a fanciful dream. A vaccine for polio was developed in 
the mid-1950s. At the cusp of another century (1796) Edward 
Jenncr developed a vaccine for small pox. What amazing 
changes havc,ta,ken place since then! _ 
■ Developments in medicine and technology have done much 
to improve human health and lengthen life span. We recognize 
. and accept these changes, but it is obvious that the issues con- 
fronted 100 years ago, or even during the past 100 years, will 
be very different than the ones we will face in the 21st century. 

A story on. biocthics written by. .Jeffrey. P. Kahn,_ Ph.D.,. 
MRtfc.und director for Center- for Biocthics. University of 
Minnesota, and reproduced at, examines a few of the 
questions that we will face in" coming years: He suggests that 
we will continue to be faced with issues of cost, and access,' We 
will also have to decide whether we should approve manipula- 
tion of genes to enhance performance; and whether gene thcra- 
- py should be used on children, fetuses, and people who arc prc- 
symptomatic of disease. 

As endless as Jhc possibilities arc,.so arc tho questions.

The road Jess traveled in Washington 

by Sen. Rod Grunts 

Political consultants and poll- 
sters often ask voters if they feel 
that the country is headed tn the 
right direction. What they usually 
forget to ask 

most also feel that therc!s more that 
needs to be done to keep 
Washington on the right track. The 
temptation for lawmakers to stray 
from fiscal responsibility is simply. 
— too great; past experience is proof 
of that. It would be irresponsible 
riot to ask the important questions 
and offer some answers on how 
best-to do right by the nation's tax- 

Fortunately, the taxpayers have 
something to cheer this year. In 
1999, Minncsotans will keep more 
than $400 million in their own- 
pockets thanks to the $500 per 
child tax credit I championed that 
will take. full effect this -tax-year.- 
Congress also achieved a balanced 
budget,-and- I'm -proud- that we^ 
accomplished this goal and im- 
proved retirement security while 
protecting every penny of. the 
Soirfal Security trust fund from 
being spent.. These accomplish- 
ments all show that Washington is' 
beginning to move in the right 
direction. - 

< . Congress tried to do even better. 
We passed an $800 billion tax 
relief package that offered relief 
"and - economic security - for-all - 
Amcricans. Our plan cut the 
■income tax across the board by one 
(percent, .eliminated the marriage 
- penalty eliminated the death and 
gift tax, reduced the capital gains 

'tax. increased the contribution lim- 
its for Individual Retirement 
Accounts, and raised ceilings on 
Educational Savings Accounts. 
Unfortunately, ournackage of mid- 
dle class tax reliefjyjis-ultimately- 
vciocd by President Clinton.' Even 
so, -its components will be 
addressed again by Congress: 

-When' the tax relief package was 
vetoed and Washington threatened 
to increase spending above its 
means, if became clear that the 
irack we're on is rusty and needs 
repair. As Congress continues to 
work on reducing the tux burden, 
preserving u balanced budget, pro- 
tecting Social Security, expanding 
health care options ■ for afi 
Americuns, helping farmers 
through a period of low prices, and 
pursuing education policies that 

. focus on quality and local decision 
making, we need to make _sUre- 
we're making progress and taking 
the best course to achieving those 

There are some busic reforms 

_lhat would make the process — and 
those responsible for currying it out 

— more accountable to the taxpay- 
ers. I've introduced the Compre- 
hensive Budget Reform uct as one 
step toward that end. My legisla- 
tion would force Congress and the 
President to agree on budget ceil- 
ings. Then, lawmakers would have 
to work together to create spending 
priorities early, in the year — and 
actually live up to them. That may 
sound like to common sense to 

-most folks,-but-iUK-a.rc.volutionury, 
idea in Washington! 

__■_ Moreover, my legislation would - 
lock in funds, at the beginning of 

■every year to provide forcmcrgen- 
cics, such as severe weather or ■ 
unanticipated national defense 

' needs, every taxpayer knows ihut 
you can't spend all your money 
without leaving some for the 
proverbial rainy day. 

. Wc must also make the budget- 
ing process more. open. so. that lost- 
minutc, .often pork-barrel provi- 

-sions' can't- bc'-attached to bills us- 
th'bugh they were ornaments on a 
Christmas tree. L voted against this 

- year's wrap-up spending bill 
because so.much.had. been added 

— without hearings, without 

debate, without consideration of 
spending limits, and without the 
consent of die full Senate. Even 
more devastating were the provi- 
sions that would extend unfair 

-dairy-policies that direcily hurt- 
Minncsota dairy farmers. This 
practice must change, and my leg- 
islation would help that, too. 

When Congress returns to work 
in January, I intend to work hard to 
capitalize on the progress we made 
in the first half of the 106th 
Congress. Wc huvc to complete the 
work we've set out' to accomplish. 
The road to fiscal responsibility is 
the road less traveled by 
Washington Standards, but if 
Congress is to continue heading 
toward an era of balanced budgets. 

' tax relief, and stronger retirement 
security, it's the road wc have to

Martin Luther 
King, Jr. Day 
offers respite 

by Rkhurd II. Mlddleton, Jr. 
and Ellen Tschtda . 

After a December full of hearty 
celebration and consumerism, the 
arrival of Martin Luther King Jr. 

Day offers American* a welc ome 

respite and opportunity to truly 
reflect on the ideals and beliefs 
upon which our country was 

Doctor King's legacy was the 
vision of a socially and economi- 
cally just nation, where all citizens 
would have the' right to life, liberty 
and the privilege 10 pursue happi- 
ness, free of the burden of racism 
and discrimination. 

Together, with, people from all 
. levels of society — workers, teach- 
ers, students, doctors and corporate' 
leaders, Dr. King helped create the 
- foundation of a free, equal nation 
full of hope for the future. 

In celebrating Martin Luther 
King Jr. Day. however, what is 
oflen — and sadly — overlooked 
is the~viiul role lawyers have 
played in shaping, enforcing and 
furthering Dr, King's universal 

Wc . must never forget the ■ ■ 
strength and courage of the mostly 
African-American lawyers who 
brought- the suits that broke the ' 
back of Jim Crow in the 1950's. 
Attorneys such as Thurgood 
Marshall, whose galvanizing work 
on Bro wn v. Boa rd of Education 
and other groundbreaking cases' 
not to mention his record as n U.S. 
Supreme Court- 'Justice, h«ve ■ 
served as inspiration to lawyers - 
and civil rights leaders every- 
where. Constance Baker Motley, 
the lawyer, who worked alongside 
Marshall at the NAACP Legal 
Defense Fund on the landmark 
Brown case, helped integrate the 
University of Texas and University 
of Florida law schools as well as 
'other univcrsi[ies~hundlcd the 
Freedom Rider cases, and often 
represented Dr. King and other 
leaders of non-violent protest. / 

One' man who has made Dr. 
King's dreams his life mission is 
lawyer Morris Dees, who was the 
son of a tenant cotton farmer in 
segregated Alabama. In 197 1 , Dees 
co-founded the Southern Poverty 
Law Center in Montgomery, AL, u 
non-profit group specializing- in 
civil rights- cases. 

Too many times '.has Mortis ■ 
Decs had his life threatened., Too 
many times have his offices been 
burned. But there he is today, at 
age 62, still fighting ihc moral bat- 
tle for justice, for all, 

America has; made enormous 
improvements on civil rights, but 
our work is. far from over. Though 
it's harder to place your finger on 
it, discrimination still exists in I 
society -and-nur-workplaccs.- The J- 
bottle for equality is a continuous' 
one. and requires "ever-vigilant 

Because of the committed work 
of people like Morris Decs and'lhc ' 
many other lawyers'who strive on u 
daily basis to uphold' the legacy of 
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., young 
Americans — whether their fami- 
lics.huve lived here for hundreds of 
years or arrived on .these shores 
just days ago — can all drcarh of 
'being _wliaicvcr they wnni_io be, 
free fronfthe" haired Uiafcahcnp^" 
pic their hopes and the bigoted. 
beliefs and practices that can throw ~ 
_ barriers in their paths.

Great Lakes wij.11 the Red river, a movement in which he is greatly 
interested, owing to the fact that he is iricultomey for the projectors 
of the scheme, he' said that the plan is perfectly feasible and that the 
company in New York has made a map of the proposed route, ahow- 
ing.all the elevations and giving the data of the work necessary to. 
complete the water connection. Members- of the company have pre- 
pared a bill, hc'saysv and 'are now in Washington for the-purposc of " 
getting it introduced as a senate measure. It is said, how ever, that the 

.Minnesota senators arc' opposed to the project, and without their aid 
it -will fail. The plans as drawn up make it necessary for the projec-, 
tors to cross the reservation lands, and the Minnesota lumber mer- 
chants claim that such a, project would have an undesirable effect 
upon the reservoirs of the upper Mississippi. For ihesc reasons, Mr. . 
Guthrie is inclined to the- belief that the -scheme 'will be blocked for 
many tnomhs, perhaps years. " , " .

"Court H ouse Bonds ;■—.- -. • 

' '" "Jus! before the county commissioners were ready to adjourn 
last Saturday a resolution was sprung calling for a special "election 
to take place on Saturday February 24th for the purpose of voting- 
$ 10.000.00 bonds to build a court house at Red Lake Falls. The res- 
olution Was promptly carried; three members of the pourd being in 
favor of it arid iwo commissioners. Hansen and Johnson, voting 

"This action on the part of Red Lake Falls comes as a surprise, 
but it has been very well planned, as a large percentage of our vot- 
ers are away from home at this season of ihe year. It is evident lhat 
Red Lake Fulls intends taking advantage of this fact to saddle a 
heavy debt on the county to build an expensive court house. It 
" remains to be seen whether the people of (he county wi|l stand sdeh^ 
work. The people of this county have not yet hud u chance to vote 
where the counly scut should be, und it is altogether probable that 
that they will have. a chance in u year or two. Until that question is 
settled, we do not think uny heavy expenditure should be incurred. 
Without doubt, either St. Hilaire or Thief River Falls will soon 
make the county u proposition to move the counly seat and we will 
here predict that the town making such proposition WILL NOT 
ASK the county to vote bonds for a court house, but will offer"a 
suitable court house free of charge to the county. 

• "Wc understand lhat a meeting has been culled to'meel next 
Saturday evening at the village hull in this village, aiid a meeting 
has been called at Thief River Falls ut the same time lo ascertain the 
•will of the people on this question. These meetings should be 
attended by every- taxpayer. 

"Wc would respectfully cull the attention of these mass meet- 
ings to the following fads: 

"First: Red Lake Fulls is not the center of Red Luke county. '. 

"Second: Red Luke county is not compelled lo issue bonds to 
build a court house as she can have one free of cost in a more cen- 
tral or as central a location as the present. 

"Third: That the people of Red Lake Falls, in calling this spe- 
cial election, involving an expense of a couple of thousand dollars 
whichwc can poorly afford to spend at this lime, have acted in bad 
faith with the county. They ure also trying to take advantage or the 
weather und the fact that many of our voters are away from home 
to fix upon us a debt which is not needed."

Verbal~a9i ? eemenWeaGhed^JiS,D.-83-^ 

Officials are hoping that proposed plan will lead to a better solution in the longrurv, „ 

by David Hill 


Red Lake Watershed District board of 
managers liuve verbally agreed to a settle- 
ment with the Minnesota Depurtmem of 
Natural Resources (DNR) regarding ditch 
cleaning assessments for State Ditch 83 
(Thief RiverJ, and a conceptual project that 
could provide greater benefit. 

Chuck-Fritz, director of the Red Lake 
Watershed District, said the board voted on 
Friday to accept a proposal presented by 
the DNR, The settlement stipulates that the 

urged to 

Property right's 
legislation to be" 

■Saturday in thief River Falls 
approximately 60 to 70 property 
owners and members of the 
Landowner's Rights Association 
were urged to stand up for right's 
legislation being proposed in the 
upcoming legislative session. 

Sen. Dan Stevens and Rep. 
Bruce Anderson, who were speak- 
ers at the Minnesota Landowner's 
Rights ■ Association Annual 
■Meeting in Thief River Falls on 
Saturday, urged those at the meet- 
ing to come down to St. Paul and 
give testimony to support (he pro- 
posed property right's legislations- 
Sen. Stevens encouraged partic- 
ipants to let their legislators know ~ 
how (hey feci, 7show up, and stay 
late." he said. And tell the govern- ■ 
ment to "stop stealing our land." 

Land rights and the "taking of 

property" arc bound to be impor- 

. tont issues in front of the stale leg- 

' ' islature .during this term. It is an 

issue that is being repeated on the 

national level as-well. 

Stevens noted that the amount 
property owned by government 
is increasing. There arc nine coun- 
ties in Minnesota, he said, where 
over 50 percent of the land is 
owned by one governmental unit 
or another. ■ ' 

■ Stulc Representative Bruce 
Anderson said he has introduced 
House File 590. The reason he is 
introducing this property right's 
legislation is the fact that con-' 
stituents wanted something to be 
done. In his research, he noted that 
there ore 19 to 20 states that 
already have property rights legis- 
lation in place. He said he modeled 
his legislation after property right's 
legislation in Florida. 

At the cnix of the issue is what 
amounts to. a "taking". Lawyers 
•have defined "taking, he said, as 
the complete taking of land, and 
have" hot" equated regulations -.on 
land as a taking. 

, Anderson said right now prop-

Officials are hoping that proposed plan will lead to a better solutibrMn the long. run 

by David Hill 

Red Lake Watershed- District, board of 
managers have verbally agreed to a settle- 
merit wiih the Minnesota Department of 
Natural Resources (DNR) regarding ditch 
cleaning assessments' for Slate Ditch 83 
(Thief River), and a conceptual project that 
could provide greater benefit. . 

Chuck Fritz, director of the Red Lake 
Watershed District, said the. board voted on 
Friday to accept a proposal presented by 
die DNR. The .settlement stipulates that the 

DNR will pay their portion of die S200.000 
assessment (roughly- S64.000) already 
levied for State Ditc h 83; Secondly, that

urged to 

Property right's 

legislation to be 

offered in session 

. Saturday in .Thief River Falls, 
approximately 60 to 70 property 
owners and members .of the 
Landowner's Rights Association - 
were urged to stand up for right's 
legislation being proposed in the " 
upcoming legislative sessipn. 

Sen. Dun Stevens and -"Rep. 
Bruce Anderson, who were speak- . 
ers at the Minnesota Landowner's 
Rights Association" Annual 
Meeting in Thief River Falls 'on 
Saturday, urged those at the meet- 
ing to come down to St. Paul and 
give testimony to support the pro- 
posed property right's legislation. 
- Sen. Sutvcns encouraged pflrtic- 
jpants to let their legislators know 
how ilicy feel, "show up, and stay 
late." he said. And tell the govern- . 
mept to "stop stealing our land." 
■ Land- rights and the "taking of 
property", are bound impor- 
tant issue's in front of the state leg- , 
islature during this term. It is an 
issue (hut is being repeutcd an the 
national level as well., 

Stevens noted that (be amount 
of. property owned by' government* 
.is increasing. There are nine coun- 
ties in Minnesota, he said, where 
over 50 percent of the land is 
owned by one governmental unit 
or another. ■ 

Stale Representative Bruce 
Anderson said he has introduced 
House- File 590. The reason he is 
introducing this property right's 
legislation is the fact .that con-; 
stitucnts"" wanted something to be , 
done. In his research, he noted that 
there arc 19 to 20 states that 
nlrcudy-havc property rights legis'-. 
lation in place. He said he modeled ' 
his legislation after property right's 
legislation in Florida. 

At the crux of the issue is what 
amounts to a "taking". Lawyers 
have defined "taking", he said, as 
the complete taking of land, and 
have not equated regulations on 
land as a taking. 

Anderson said right now prop- 
erty owners are not being compen- 
sated for restrictions that place an 
"inordinate burden" on. use of the 
property. The legislation he is pro- 
moting" "would — compensate 
lundowners for the full market 
value of land that is restricted in its 
use by regulation.

measure will pass in the House but

Rendulich sisters bound by love and kidney 

— T 8-year-oLd ^ngje rRendulrclrrlonated kidney-tcrsister-Traeir^arDecember-^^ 

by Kalhi Curlson 
Times Reporter 

As sisters, you share genes, his- 
tory and soniflimcs a bedroom and 
clothes. Al times you are bcsl 
friend:., and in the next instant, mor- 
tal enemies. You can evoke in cadi 
-other the mn>l profound love and al 
other limns, virulent hale. . 

Those words describe sisters and 
what is one of life's most wonderful 
and complicated relationships. 

It wus simple love, however, llial 
sent Angie Rendulich 10 the doctor's 
office shortly after her 1 8lh birthday 
in August. Without any encourage- 
ment from anyone she *cl about 
"saving my sister's life." 

Angic had a physical for the pur- 
pose of determining whether she 

was a suitable kidney donor for her 
22-year-old sister Trail 

The Rendulich sillers the 
daughters of Robert and Margie 
Rendulich of Thief River Falls and 
two of five Kcndulich. children. , 
Oldest daughter Lisa is married and 
expecting her second child in 
Fehruarv. Krisiine is between sec--, 
ond daughter Tr.ici and fourth 
daughter Angic. and 17-year-old 
Eric is the youngest. 

Tracj's kidney problems were 
discovered years ago during a 
preschool checkup, A lollow-up 
medical examination showed thai 
she had been bom with only one 
kidney and that there was an 
obstruction between the single, 
enlarged kidney ami her bladder. In 

As soon as she turned 18 In August, Angle Rendulich (left) made 
an appointment to see a physician to determine if she was a suit- 
able kidney donor for her sister Trad. The transplant took place on 
December 28 at Fatrview-University Medical Center In the Twin 
Cities. ' 

1982 Truci underwent her first 
surgery in Grand Forks und was 
hospitalized for several weeks. 

Throughoui the years her condi- 
tion was closely monitored and by 
l'JS7 it was apparent that her kidney 
was failing und that she needed to 
begin dialysis or receive un organ 

With that knowledge Margie 
Rendulich sought the tests neces- 
sary to determine if she could 
donate one of her kidneys to Traci. 
and after it was determined that she 
was a good match, the transplant - 
was performed on January 2X. 1988 
al the University of Minnesota 

Newspaper stories featured the 
young girl. OnV\nril 25. 1984. Traci 
was Icaturcd jn The Times us having 
received assistance from the 
Pennington County Kidney 
Foundation. On January 25. 1989 
another story featured Traci a few 
days before the one year anniversary 
of her transplant. An accompanying 
photograph showed un 11-yeur-old 
youngster on the basketball court 
doing what she enjoyed must — 
playing ball and going about her life 
like a regular healthy child. 

For eight more years Traci lived 
a normal life, growing from a child 
into a young woman and graduating 
from Lincoln High School in 199m. 
. Early in the spring, of 1997 Traci 
experienced kidney lailurc and was 
hospitalized at MeriiCarc in: Fargo 
for .several weeks. After her release. 
trips to Grand Forks on Mondays. 
Wednesdays and Fridays for dialysis 
became a routine part of the young 
woman's life. 

During 1997's historic flood 
Traci had to go to Bcmidji for ■ dial- 
ysis until the facility reopened in 
Grand Forks. For more than two and 
one half years, those trips were 
made three times u week every week 
■ regardless of weather or road condi- 
tions. Each time, the dialysis 
process took four hours. 

While living with the demands of 
dialysis treatments as well us fluid 
and diet restrictions'. Traci continued 
to live as normal a life as possible, 
scheduling her work hours at. 
SupcrVulu around her trips to Grand 
Forks, playing softball on a team 
and enjoying her time with friends. 
While people receiving dialysis 
treatments can live for u very long 
time, it is not what most of us would 
considered a 'normal" life. Tract, in 
fact, moved from Thief River Falls' 
to Moorhcad last spring so that she 
could be closer to a dialysis unit. 
She continues to live there und is 
employed us a receptionist at Gate 
City Federal Bunk and part-time -a! 
. Hombachcrs. . 

It was the prospects of a normal ■ 
life that Angie gave Traci when she 
donated a kidney to her sister, and 
she unselfishly put her own life on

donated a kidney to her sister Traci on December 

With Iheir entire family as well 
as theip- boyfriends by iheir sides. 
Traci and 'Angic- checked into 
Fairview-Universiiy Medical Center 
on Christmas. Day. Both of ihe 
young women would undergo a 
series of tests; .including, an, 
angiogram- lor Angiu .to .determine 
which kidney would be the most 
suitable for Traci. 

The surgeries tood place on 
Tuesday. December 28 at Ihe same 
p|ace_ where Traci had received a 
kidney from her mother in 1988. . 

While Traci had an idea of what 
she was in for from past experi- 
ences, Angie had no idea. She was- 
n't afraid, however, until those lust 
few moments right before she and 
Traci's .side-by-side gumeys were to 
be wheeled into the operating room. 
Those lust few minutes were' an 
emotional linnvfor the young 
women. Iheir family and boyfriends, 

. The length of the ordeal was two 
hours for Angie and four hours for 
Traci. Their anxious parents, sisters, 
brother and Tract's boyfriend.. 
Travas Knutson. and Angic's 
boyfriend, Matt Lawrence, waited. 
The young men were so attentive, in 
fact, that at one point, the girls' 
mother Margie commented that she 

may just as well have stayed home. 
New to the rigors of surgery, 
recovery was a bit more difficult for 
Angic. ond it was Traci who visited 
her first. While it is more common 
for ihe dotior'to be the'first ohe'oul 
of bed, Traci pushed herself. "I just 
wanted to sec her," she soys- of her 
younger sibling. 

Angie was' released from the hos- 
pital on 'Friday, December '3 1 and 
enjoyed u Vikings football gnme at 
the Mctrodome before returning' to 
Thief River Falls. 

While Traci would harfLenjoycd 
the game too, she's been advised to 

. avoid large groups of -people 
because she is more susceptible to 
infection. Traci was released on 
Tuesday. January 4 and returned to- 
iler home in Moorhcad on Jiinuury 
5. ■ 

Both of the young women will be 
taking it easy for awhile with full 
recovery time estimated at 90 days. 
Bolh'havc experienced incision pain 
and stiffness and find it difficult to- 
sit for long periods of lime. Traci 
has blood drawn and tested three 

- times a week and is scheduled for a 
checkup at Fairvicw-University 

" Medical Center in three months. 
Angic will sec her lotfal physician- 

lor blood work in six wcckS. 

While six weeks is the normal 
amount of time to be away from 
one's job. Traci may be able to go 
buck to her desk job sooner. ■ 

Both of the girls have plans, for 
the future. Because of the surgery, 
Angic did not registcc for school this 
year but plans to attend Bcmidji 
State University next year to pursue 

■ u degree in early childhood develop- 
ment. Traci says she will probably . 
go back to school, too, and is inter- 
ested in becoming li rcspitory thera- 
pist. Thunks to her sister, Traci can 
expect to live a completely normal 
life that can, according to her doc- 
tors, include children. 

Family and friends will rally, 
around Traci and Angie once again 
tomorrow evening (Thursday, 
January 20) from 5 to 8 p.m. at the 
Elks. A benefit spaghetti supper will 
be held, put on by Super One and .

As regional director". Barbara 
Jauquet-Kalinoski notes, the pro- 
gram encourages ,. elementary 
school-age children to practice the 
reading skills they arc learning in 
school, for parents. and caregivers to 
shore leisure time by reading to 
children, for adults to catch up with 
the novels and biographies they 
haven't had time to read, and for 
volunteers to read to the elderly in 
■ nursing homes. Reading brings peo- 
ple together, and all Northwest 
Rcgronnj.branch libraries encourag- 
' ing residents to.spcnd as much lime 
reading as they arc viewing televi- 
sion or using the computer. To quote 
Walt- Disney, 'There is more trea- 
sure in books than in all the'piratc's 
loot on Treasure Island."

made about minorities to a reporter requirement dial you be educated or 
"* ' ' act decent, nor should there be. 

In a.sancsoeiely^ a dimwit like 
Rocker would be left to his own 
thoughts. His comments would be 
ignored as free speech which does- 
n't deserve to be broadcasted. The 
reporter would have realized that 
John Rocker's opinion on anything 
but baseball is not important. 

But we are a society where sani- 
ty takes a backseat to the need to 
sell magazines. Thusi Rocker's stu- 
pid comments wereas valuable to- 
Sports Illustrated as Jesse Ventura's 
outrageous remarks were to another 
large magazine a while back. 

When somebody famous makes 
nasty remarks, there seems to be a 
great need to. punish the offender. 
Ban him from baseball! Or worse, 
send him to the psychiatrists! 

John Rocker isn't ' somebody I 
would want to have dinner with, but

Under pressure to do^omcthing 
about this major crisis, baseball

with a solution worthy of the old 
Soviet Union. John Rocker must 
undergo psychiatric care if he wants 
to continue to play in the major 

I suspect the. psychiatrist will 
find that John Rocker suffers from 
Incorrect Thought Syndrome. (ITS). 
He will be required to undergo 
counseling. Come spring training, a 
glazcd-cyed Rocker will apologize 
for his evil wuys, and reporters will 

laud him for dealing so openly with

say to each other.over a six-pack on

It is also likely that Rocker is 
expressing opinions quietly held by 
.many of the over-muscled, ' under- 
educated, over-paid athletes he 
plays along side. Rocker merely 
doesn't know when to keep hrs

The only qualification for play-, 
ing major league baseball is that 

There are simpler solutions. 
Remember, John Rocker pilches in 
the National League. That means he 
has to bat a handlul of times per sea- 
son. When he bats, he goes against 
pitchers who throw very hard, many 
of them members of minority 

Forget the psychiatrists! A few 
_fasiballs high and tight will show 
Rocker the" wisdom of keeping his 
mouth shut. 

There are two things about win- 
ter in the noith that I look forward 
to. One is hockey. But the other is 

.something, ajhtle jnore_exireine: 
Snowboardirig. In the length of this 
column I can't explain to you the 
thrill of racing down a snow cov- 
ered slope, strapped onto a single 
board. It takes skill, time to learn, 
and sometimes 1 think it takes a lit- 
tle disregard for one's own safely* 
Chances are, -any veteran snow- 
boarder has a few tales or scars that 
will make you wince and walk away 
shaking your head. 

Snowboarding was invented in 

-ihesovenlies by a man named'Jim 
Burton. He told all his friends he 

. was going to surf down a mountain. 
He was met with both laughter and 

heller than 1 am. Don't get me 
wrong. I love seeing how the sport 
has grown, but sometimes I don't 
like where it's growing to. If you 
look on any ski hill in lhe*country. 
you'll see something you would 
have never seen five years ago; old 
men on snowboards! Classically u 
young person's sport, snowboarding 
has grown to attract many new 
groups of neople. That part I like. 
Some say il is losing its grass roots 
culiure-thal the Olympics will ruin 
people's perspective of it. But as 
long as tliere are kids who would 
rather walk and use the week's gas 
money lo buy a lift ticket, I'don'l 
see our sport changing anytime 

it's not a sport for someone with 

Sno^ob ms 






criticism. Bui he pressed on. and ; a weak stomach-or 

e with a 


Gelatin Paint 
The jollowing activity is uninterest- 
ing- experience because when the 
child starts to paint, the mixture 
feels grainy, then il becomes slip- 
pery, then il becomes sticky, and 
when it dries it will again feel 
grainy. You will need: 


■ Anger 
.J&ycryonc gets angry. You do and 
so docs your child. But figuring put , 
what to do'with that anger is tough. 
It makes parenting one of ihe hurd- 
est jobs in the world, states the 
Minnesota Department of Public 

thirty years later,' Burton' 
Snowboards is a multi-million dol- 
lar company. It never. caught on 
until the early eighties, though. 
Back then, almost every ski hill in 
the country banned snowboarding. 
But soon, with the efforts of men 
like Jim Burton, ihey began to see it 
as a '' serious sport and not. jusl a 

I remember back when I was in 
__LniJigDide; 1 was the only snow- 
joarder on our class ski trip. Now. 
you can't spit without hitting some- 
one in my class who is as good or 

wax paper, ■ -_ ■ Most of us were not taught how 
gelatin (raspberry, black cherry, and to deal with anger during our child- 
blackberry flavors emit the hood. Often we were led lo believe 
strongest odors and give the deepest that to be angry was to be bad and 
colors), we were often made lo feel guilty 
waier for expressing anger, it will be eas- 
Wci the wax paper, sprinkle two ier to deal will] children's anger if 
or three tablespoons of dry gelatin . we get rid of the notion thai anger is ' 
on the wet paper and let your child bad. Try to treat it as a najuraj

ash flow. When you start to 
price snowboards it can get a lillle 
crazy. I paid $150.00 for my first 
snowboard, and $259' for 'my last 
one. Now granted, you can get away 
with a used board, cheap boots, and 
a starter coat, hut soon you'll be 
wanting the goods. A new board'.' 
That should set you back $300- 
$400. Bindings-?- S100-$I6().

Earlier this season, Matt Mocn 
was the offense for the Northland 
Community and Technical College 
men's basketball team. Mocn, a 
sophomore forward from FoSston, is 
still the key to the Pioneers' attack. 
But now he's getting help - lots of - 
it. Friday, four teammates joined 
him In double figures in a 96-86 
Minnesota Community College 
Conference win over visiting 

The Dalanced attack was led by 
Jeremy Vacura, who hit four 3-point 
shots en route to a 20-potnt night, 
Mocn a nd Kelly Cota with 18 eac h, 
Jason Pmjcney 17, andean Lcong 

Northland won it with a seven-point 
swing late tn-lhe second half. 

The Pioneers, down 43-42 at 
halftime, never trailed after Mocn 
hit a short jumper to put them ahead 
52-51 with 11:34 remaining. But it 
stayed close until Ptnkney convert- 
ed a three-point play by scoring -on 
the.inside and adding a free throw; 
Leoug connected from die side; and 
Pinkney finished a fast break with a 
slam dunk to turn a narrow 72-68 
edge into a 79-68 spread with 5:19 - 
to play. That sequence, aided by a 
pair of Hibbing turnovers, took just 

Johnson scores 32 
in 69-54 Goodridge 
win over Mustangs 

Chad Johnson scored 32 points 
and Goodridge shot 56 percent from 
the field Friday as the Huskies beat 
host Red Lake County Central 69- 
54 in boys high school basketball. " 
' ^The winners used a batch of 
press-breaking lay-ups to shoot 71 
percent (32/45) from 2-point range. 
They were 32-for-57 overall- quite 
a contrast from a low-scoring 34-32 
victory over Kittson County North 
' earlier in the week. ... 

"We had some offense for a 
change," quipped Goodridge coach 
Eric Mickelson. "We shot a lot of 
lay-ups. They (Mustangs) put a lot 
of pressure on you defensively, 
Tney try to -trap you. If you don't 
get trapped, you get-to-shoot-lay — 
ups. Their pressure got to us a few . 
' times, but overall, we handled it 
pretty well.". 

The Huskies hod quarter leads of 
J7-12, 37-26 and 51-43 to square 
their record at 4-4, 

Johnson, who also _pulled down 
10 rebounds, .stole the spotlight. 
"Chad had a great game," con- 
firmed Mickelson. "He's on aggres- 
sive player. We expect a lot out of 
him, and be does a good job for us. 
But he went above and beyond that ' ' 
in this one." ■ » 

Red Lake' County Central tried to 
counter Johnson's outburst with a 
balanced attack -12 points from 
■Cole Mickelson, ^brother-of-the_=: 
'Goodridge coach, and 11 apiece 
from Setn Fore and Darren Vanek. 

Red Lake County Central was 
-20-for-52 from the field (39 per- 
cent) and 6-for-8 at the free throw 
line, where Goodridge went 5-for-9. 
The Huskies finished with a 25-21 
. rebound edge over the Mustangs,' 
who topped the turnover charts 17- 

The loss dropped the Mustangs to 

51 seconds. 

A bucket by Lcong that made ii 
85-73 with 3:21 on the clock was 
(he final Northland field goal of the 
night. The'Pionecrs finished it with 
1 l-for-14 free throw shooting - part 
of a 21-for-29 showing at the line 
for the game. 

Northland also enjoyed a 52 per- 
cent 35-for-67' shooting perfor- 
mance from |hc field. 

Hibbing, meanwhile, was just 16- 
for-26 at the line while going 32-' 
for-69 from the field (46 percent). 

The Cardinals were led by a 1-2 
punch featuring 6-5 sophomore Joe 
Hanson with. 26 points and 5-!0 
-freshman Travis MacLeod with 22. 
Josh Liliquist and Chad Bessler 
joined mem in double figures with 
13 and 10 points, respectively.

The action produced 45 turnovers - 
25 by the Cardinals. The Pioneers 
bad 16 of their 20 lumdvcrs-by half- 

"We played pretty well defen- 
sively 'in -the first half," noted 
Northland coach Rick Nikunen, 
"but offensively, wc just didn't exe- 
cute' we didn't take care of the 

Nikunen accepted part of the 
blame for the Pioneers' first half 

struggles on offcaw. "I tried to play 
too many kids," he explained. "I 
.substituted too much, 
up our rotation. We never really got . 
in sync. We didn't nin in as many 
kids in the, second half, and we 
played better basketball." 
. The win improved the Pioneers' 
record to 5-10 overall, 1-2 in the 
'. MCCC Northern Division. As 
reported earlier, a Saturday match-, 
up witfi Rainy River was cancelled- 
when the Voyugcurs announced

Low-scoring, close games have 
been the norm for the Prowlers all

Latest chapter in the Prowlers' 
1999-2000 book was a scoreless 
draw until Moorhead's Dan Grigel 
scored at the 13-minutc mark of the 
first period. 

Just 27 seconds into die second 
period it wasu 1,-1 game when Thief

Turnovers finally took a toll on 
Goo'dridgc/Grygla-.Gatzke in the 
fourth quarter Monday as the 
Wolverines lost a 53-43 girls high 
school basketball game to Marshall 
Counly Central ut Ncwfoldcn. 

,.__The Nordici^prcssforecdlhc-vis— 
itors into 28 turnovers, but it wasn't 
until a nine-point final quarter spurt 
did those change of possessions add 
much to. the Marshall Counly 
Central offense. 

•"We didn't score on the turnovers 
like we should have." said Marshall 
'County Central coach Alice Dahl, 
"but wc had a strong fourth quarter.- 

' Vfc had that little surge; we finally 
got some points off the press." 

Marshall County Centra) had a 
13-10 first quarter. Goodridge/ 
Grygla-Gatzkc pulled intcra* lie at 
halftime, with the .Nordics going 
back on top 37-34 at the close of die 

. third quarter. It .was a . one-point 

game with seven minutes to go 
before the winners put together their 
game-clinching run. 
The win upped the Nordics' 

• record to 7-6. Tnc Wolverines fell to 
1-10, but Goodridgc/Grygla-Gatzkc 

-coach Jusiin-Lunsetter liked- what he 
saw, especially compared, to his 
team's showing in a 49-24-los*-to 
Warren-Alvarado-Oslo Thursday. 

"I thought wc looked much belter 
than we did in die last gnmc," said 
Lunscttcr. "It was a big turnaround. 
Wc still had a lot of turnovers, but 
we did a pretty good-job against 

7 their press;- We were- more -uggres— 

'sive offensively, and we did a good 
job on defense against Kristi KjTen." 
- Kilcn, the Nordics' scoring leader 
fpr the season, was limited to .8 
points. But Tern Davidson came up 
with a 16-point, 14-rcbound game, 
while Christa Hagcn scored 13 
points and Mandi Blawat had a solid 

8-point contribution.' 

"Wc had sonic players who' had 
strong games." noted Dahl. 

Aea Anderson and Natalec Holtc ■ 
led Goodridge/Gryglu-Gatzke with 
In and 12 points, respcctivclv. 

Marshal! County Central shot just 
34 percent from ihe field (20/58),

" were adulcdifcs; andThe remaining 
12 percent were fawns. In 1998, the 
buck, harvest was 70 percent adult 
male deer. 

Cui-counts taken during the 1999 
season indicated that hunting pres- 
sure in the Thief Lake area 
increased by 10 percent over that 
observed during the 1998 season. 
Weather for the entire deer season 
was unusually mild, with no. snow 

Higher deer populations were " 
present in 1999 as herds continue to 
recover from the low populations '. 
following severe winters in 1995-96 
and 1996-97. This allowed for an 
increase in amlcrlcss pcrmiLs, which 
in turn contributed to the increase in 
harvest. ' Hunters had favorable 
reports regarding numbers of deer 
seen afield', and the health of ani- 
mals taken. 

In an effort to improve deer pop- 
ulation management, additional bio- 
. logical information* was'collcctcd at 
some of the registration stations. 
DNR biologists took information on. 
deer age (by examining tooth erup- 
tion and wear) and antler beam 
diameters. This information is used 
to refine estimates of population age 
structure and productivity, which is 
' particularly important when setting 
amlcrlcss deer permit recommenda- 
tions. While the majority of bucks 
taken were yearlings, a number of 
older deer were also encountered 
during this process.

Deer harvest figures 
announced for 1999 

Preliminary results from the 1999 
firearms deer season^show that 
Minnesota hunters harvested 
1 65.000 deer, a* 1 6 percent increase 
from the I42.000 deer taken by 
firearms hunters in I998. the 
Department of Natural Resources 
reported recenllysjhe 1 999 harvest 
was the scvenih . highest firearms 
deer harvest recorded in' Minhesolu. 

'confidence of DNR wildlife man- 
agers in a healthy. recovery -of .deer 
populations in the north-central 

forested areas. . :.; 

"There were a lot of yearling 
bucks in' the population this year 
due to good fawn survival through 
last winter." explained ■ Gorily 
Forester, assistant regional .DNR 
wildlife superv iso r at Bemidji.' "The 

lion as well, we had many reports of 
bucks that dressed out in excess of 
200 pounds." 

"The 1999 firearms deer se;json 
was unique in that no snow cover 
was present during the entire 
firearms season," Lines noted. "The 
warmest November on record. 

Improved hunting success was deer-were tn generally 
attributed by the DNR to the past " ' ' 

two very mild winlers and the 
recovery of northern deer herds 
under highly restricted antlerless 
permits the past two seasons. Also, 
crop harvests were largely complet- 
ed prior to the hunting season, pro- 
viding less cover for deer in agricul- 
tural areas, according lo Kevin' 
Lines, DNR- farmland wildlife pro- 
gram leader. In addition. Lines said, 
mild conditions during the season 
allowed hunters to stay afield 

Increases were highest in the. 
northeast where harvests were up 60 
percent from I998. Mos^of north- 
ern Minnesota had antlerless per- 
mits available for the first time in 
three years, except in the 
Arrowhead portion of the stale, 
which was still restricted lo bucks- 
only hunting. Harvests also 
increased in the east-central ( 1 2 per- 
cent) and northwest (24 percent). 

Deer harvest generally declined 
in the south, where fewer permits 
were available in many ureas. 
Hurvests in the west and southwest 
dropped 5 percent. The Twin Cities 

— metroarca. harvest dropped by 10 

, percent in the north and remained 

' stable in the south from last year. In 
southeastern Minnesota, the harvest

Deer are in excellent condition. 
Lines said, and if the winter of 2000 
continues to be mild, or even nor- 
mal, the deer herd will continue lo 
increase in most areas. 

Final deer harvest figures for all

In northwest Minnesota, a total of 
46,288 registered deer were report- - 
cd during the 1999 firearms season, 
up from 37,239 animals registered 
in the same area in 1998.. 

DNR's northwest region includes 
21 counties in northwest and west- 
central Minnesota, in the northern 
portions of hunting Zones 2 and 4, 
plus a narrow slice along the west- . 
. cm, edge of Zone I. where limited 
numbers of antlerless permits were 
made available this season for the 
first time since 1995. 

The DNR ulso increased antler- 
less permits by 20 percent over lust 
year in the northern half of Zone 4. 
In the northern half of Zone 2, 

antlerless permits were more than •82.808:1996.43.331:1997.33.677:1998 
doubled - from 8,450 last year to ■ -37.239; 1999- 4o.zea. 
17,000 this year - reflecting the 

Opening dates are listed 
for 2000 hunting season 

Opening dates for many of the 
- year 2000 Minnesota hunting sea- 
sons were announced recently by 
the Department of . Natural 
Resources. The. Hales are being 
announced now for the benefit of 
those who must establish vacation 
or, hunting plans well in advance. 
Although these dates arc tentative, 
pending final approval in June, it is 
unlikely they will change. 

As previously announced, the 
DNR plans to go back to an every- 

othcr-ycar moose hunt until funding 

and staffing of wildlife management Krlsti Joppru 8. 
programs improve. There will be no -▼■-«•— 
season ih 2000, but a season is 
planned for 2001. 

Because moose arc large animals 
with relatively low mortality, 
approximately twice as many per- 
mits should be available iiyan_ 
cvcry-othcr-ycar" season as' ifPTlie 
past annual seasons. This means 
that the same amount of hunting 
opportunity and revenue will con- 
tinue to be provided, with improved 
efficiency because less administra- 
tion of the hunt will be required. 

Crow hunters should note the 
new split season that is in effect this 
ycarfor the first time. Previously, 
the crow hunting season opened in 
mid-summer and ran for a contmu- 
~ ous 124 days. Now it is split into' a- 
March season and a summer-fall 
- the maximum allowed by federal 
law. This. change was made in 
response to requests from crow 
hunters for late-winter hunting 

Bear season opener may be 
moved a week earlier in an attempt 
- to increase harvests and reduce thc~ 
• potential for bear nuisance 5 and 
damage problems. A separate ' 
announcement will describe bear 
season proposals and the proposed 
opening date. 

Additional details on season 
lengths, quotas and bag limits will 
be announced next summer after the 
2000 seasons arc finalized 1 .

shocked the Roseau fans. They were 
expecting a blow-out. and what they 
got was a nail-hiler. Unfortunately, 
we had lo forfeit two weights - at 
145,- where we haven't Ii«d anyone 
all year, and at heavyweight, wherc- 
Jeremy Lian was ill." 

The Prowlers won four straight 
matches, from 112 pounds through 
1.10. behind Jeremy Anderson. Mike 
Mageii. Beau Ahrahaiiison. and 
Chris Lian. then picked up addition- 
al wins from Jon .Swanson at 152 . 
and Aric Berg al 171. For Herg. who 
recently joined the leant, it was his 
first varsity victory, 

"From 112 to 131). we thrashed

Verbal agreement 
reached on State Ditch^3 

Future projects? 

Fritz suitl there were a 4ot of 
rumors ooi liiere 'about what the 
RLWD is planning, but the truth is 

' that the projects are only in the con- 
ceptual stage. More meetings will 
be held before the. concepts are 
fleshed out. 

The Project Work Team pro- 
posed in its concept paper that a 
division channel be constructed. In 
very general terms they proposed a 
division ditch from Elk Lakc/J.D. 
1 1 branch 200 area along a south- 

. westerly alignment to C. D. 20. The 

division would continue southwest- 
erly and enter the Thief River four- 
miles north of Thtcf River Falls. 

The Project Work Team concept 
proposal on storage calls for stor- 
age areas in conjunction with the. 
diversion alternatives. The propos- 
al culls for 10,000 acre feet of stor- 
age needed to reduce flooding 
afong C.D. 20. The concept paper 
also states: "The Project Work 
Team has. by consensus, agreed to 
pursue dry impoundments in some 
locations.' .. 

(Continued from Page 1 ) 
years protection for farmland, and 
100 year event projection for 
municipalities, and it would cost 
landowners very little. 

Fritz noted that the RLWD has 
already spent S7.000 to 515,000 on 
legal Ices. If they were to continue, 
he said their costs would probably 
double."lt would be easy to contin- 
ue," he said. "And if the RLWD 
won what would we get?" 
The Petitioners 

Stacy Martin, who was chosen 
- by- the petitioners to.rcpresent.lheir, 
interests on the Project Work Team, 
said she is in complete agreement 
with the settlement, as it lias been 
described to her. Martin said the 
Project Work Team meetings were 
fascinating, and an invigorating 
experience that showed to her ftat 
the individuals serving on the gov- 
ernmental agencies are people. She 
said she told them, however, that 
they have to live by a lot of stupid 

Whether it will work remains to 
be seen, but Martin said she is opti- 
mistic. What she specifically likes.

"They've been finding it harder 
and harder to compete for years," 
said Ault. "Hartz mainly served 
stores in small towns. The demise of

was asked .to step down in 1991,

just out of high school. Although he
